Kopargaon (Maha), Feb 2 (PTI) The Union Government will create the Broadcasting Authority of India (BAI) on par with TRAI, covering TV channels and Doordarshan, Union Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting S Jagatrakshakan said at Shirdi today.

The minister told reporters that the 140-year-old Indian Press Act needs amendment and a committee would be set up for the purpose.

"The UPA-led government has taken a decision to create BAI on the lines of Telephone Regulatory Authority of India and very soon a draft bill will be prepared," he said.

It is difficult to monitor TV channels telecasting news and programmes as there has been a huge growth in their numbers, he said, adding channels should desist from airing sensitive issues which may create unrest.
